Guide to investing in volatile markets

Welcome to our guide  provided by Architas Asset managers on investing in volatile markets. The term volatility refers to periods of short-term rises and falls in the price of investments. These movements in price can be caused by a variety of political and economic factors, such as a change in government policy or news that impacts a specific industry causing uncertainty.

While it is natural to be concerned when you see sharp fluctuations in the value of your investments, it’s important to remember that volatility is a normal part of investing and all long-term investors will experience it to some degree from time to time.

From the importance of diversifying your portfolio to a five-point investment checklist, this guide will give you information on all the things you might need to consider when investing through periods of volatility in the markets. 

It’s important to remember everyone’s situation is different, so speaking to us before making any decisions is a good first step if you are in any doubt about what investment to make.  We tailor an appropriate long-term investment plan to meet your specific need and advise you of an appropriate course of action.

The value of investments and income from them may go down. You may not get back the original amount invested. Investments should be regarded as long term and fit in with your overall attitude to investment risk and financial circumstances.
